Cozido

Fall is creeping in with crisp and cooler evenings.  Kitchens warmed with simmering stews and soups are quintessential classics.  This is a Brazilian take on “boiled dinner” or stew.
Assorted vegetables and meats are slowly cooked tender and served together with  Pirão (farofa/cassava flour mixed with hot broth).

Ingredients:

Beef Chuck

Assorted salted pork cuts

Smoked Sausage (such as Polish)

Potatoes

Pumpkins

Chayote Squash

Okra

Beets

Cabbage

Plantain

Carrot

Farofa

Boil Meats until tender at least 3 hours.  Boil Vegetables beginning with longest cooking time (ie Potatoes) until tender.  Add Farofa to a skillet and simmer with broth from the cooked meats until creamy.  Serve meats and vegetables on a large platter with Pirão on the side.

Muito Bom!
